I am new.
I am setting up a little business advising hotels on reviews from a variety of sources ( tripadvisor etc) - eg how it moves their rankings, how to spot fake positive reviews, the level of validation of a review etc.
Most of the stuff is on the web somewhere and i just take the issue and apply it to their situation.
So as I have picked up a bit of knowledge and am happy to answer any questions members might have about reviews.
I also live in New Zealand so am happy to answer questions about NZ as a destination.
Why did i join? Well i used to be a big fan of Tripadvisor but now I know alot more about its workings prefer to be in places like Travellerpoint where there still seems to be a concern about fundementals eg validating reviews, good moderation, good community involvement etc
